House music icon Peggy Gou has just released a dreamy new music video for her 2019 hit, “Starry Night”. The montage was shot by filmmaker and photographer Jonas Lindstroem in South Korea and features award-winning actor Yoo Ah In (who starred in the South Korean film Burning).
The cinematic short film features beautiful images of young girls in Korean school uniforms, children practicing martial arts and long, panning views of traditionally-clad women dancing in water. “I wanted to do something that would make you dance like nobody’s watching you,” Gou said. “We came to this idea and then we research it deeply and then he (Lindstroem) found Ganggangsullae, which was a really old, traditional South Korean dance that they used to perform under the moon to bring in a happy New Years and stuff. So this is how it came up, to be honest, I must say, I need to give him credit for this because it didn’t come from me, but our goal was to achieve that everybody wants to feel alive and what connects people is music and dance.”
